Airstrike Targets ISIS Executioner
A US drone strike targeted a vehicle in Syria believed to be transporting the masked Islamic State jihadist known as “Jihadi John” on Thursday, according to American officials. Whether the strike killed the British man, who appeared in several videos depicting the beheadings of Western hostages, was not known, officials said.
Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said the strike Thursday in Syria’s Raqqa targeted Mohammed Emwazi. Cook said whether or not Emwazi died in the strike wasn’t immediately clear.
